Since reported at the previous radar conference, significant enhancements have been made to the National Weather Radar Testbed (NWRT) phased array radar (PAR). As part of an ongoing effort, the radar control interface (RCI) has been improved to support system development, operations, and research. For example, as the adaptive scanning capabilities of the phased array radar are being explored and developed, further improvements to the RCI are being made to provide an effective interface between the PAR and the developers, scientists, and users.

This paper describes the improvements to the NWRT RCI and discusses the impacts of these in terms of increasing the usability of this unique radar system.
